Tip #77 - My Suitcase is Lost! It's the Black One!
You might think that buying a practical, black bag might be the way to go--you don't stand out, thieves don't notice it, dirt stains aren't so obvious....right? If you ever lose your bag and have to describe it to airline staff, you will soon realize that this is a suitcase choice that will not help you retrieve your lost bag. Being able to pick your bag out in a crowd will make it easier to identify and save you a lot of headaches. Purchase a colorful suitcase or you can personalize what you already have by tying colorful ribbons on it. Try painting something on the side that stands out, or just putting some duct tape around the handle. When you see your bag on the carousel, you'll know it's yours!
